University Events

Villanova University is restricting non-essential events and meeting on campus, due to COVID-19. The following guidelines will be in effect beginning August 1, 2020 to ensure best practices for the health and safety of the campus community and following the requirements of the Caritas Commitment. The Event Management Committee will centrally review all requests for events and is entrusted with approving only those that can be held safely and without infringing on the need for academic space.

Event Management for COVID-19 Planning for Spring 2021


Since many meeting spaces will be used as classrooms, campus events will be significantly reduced to those essential for academic, athletic or student service purposes. Faculty, staff, and students should plan events and meetings as virtual gatherings to eliminate the need for in-person gatherings. All campus events, both virtual and in person, must be submitted to the University Calendar at least 7 days prior to the event.

Alumni Association Related Events

Due to the current and evolving state and county specific restrictions nationwide related to in-person gatherings, all University-sponsored events held off campus, including Regional Club events, are canceled. Villanova University will continue to assess the feasibility of these types of in-person events, and will update the website as the situation evolves.

Campus Tents

To create additional meeting and study space on campus during the Spring 2021 semester, open-air tents will be erected throughout campus to accommodate academic and student needs.
